Founder Institute, WomenTech Network team up to bridge gap between Europe and Silicon Valley for female founders
Amid the darkening outlook for female-owned businesses, two of the globe’s most influential tech communities have joined forces to shine rays of light on the scene of female entrepreneurship and ensure that all the progress seen over the past years is not erased, as experts fear, by the negative economic impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The “first-of-its-kind” virtual initiative is the fruit of a partnership between the Founder Institute (FI), the world’s premier pre-seed accelerator with chapters across 200 cities and 60 countries, and WomenTech Network, the world’s largest community for women in tech with more than 4,200 ambassadors representing 161 countries.
According to FI, the program is part of Amsterdam – Silicon Valley Virtual 2021 and pursues a two-fold vision that can inspire and influence those who want to unleash their fiery passion for technology and change.
It aims to not only help build additional impactful, women-led startups but also further establish Amsterdam as a center for female leadership, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
